NEW YORK — Sanaa Lathan (suh-NAH’ LAY’-thun) will star in the world premiere of Lynn Nottage’s new play, “Meet Vera Stark.”

Lathan, who earned a Tony nomination for “A Raisin in the Sun,” which also starred Sean “Diddy” Combs, will play the title character, a headstrong African-American maid and budding actress.

Nottage, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her play “Ruined,” draws on the screwball films of the 1930s to take an irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood.

The production will begin previews April 6 and open May 9 off-Broadway at Second Stage Theatre.

Lathan recently starred in the London revival of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” She played Isabella in “Measure for Measure” opposite Billy Crudup at The Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park.
